MOSCOW, October 5 (Itar-Tass) — Deputy chairman of the Investigative Committee (SK) Valery Piskaryov opened a criminal case against senior investigator for special cases from the Interior Ministry's main investigation department Nella Dmitriyeva over taking a large bribe through an intermediary.
"Criminal proceedings were opened under Criminal Code Article 290, Part 6," SK spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass.
"The investigator has ascertained that Dmitriyeva, who was investigating a contraband case, demanded from the suspects a 3-million-dollar bribe for exempting them from criminal responsibility," the SK said.
"She attracted her acquaintances to take the bribe. On August 23, the intermediaries took 50,000 euros, 1,000 dollars and dummy currency imitating euros and dollars in the amount equivalent to almost 50 million roubles.
"Federal Security Service agents arrested the intermediaries as they were taking the money," according to the SK.
Some media outlets reported that special investigator Dmitriyeva was a member of the group probing the Magnitsky case.
